These fun bagels are easy enough for the kids to assemble themselves. Precut all of the veggies and allow the children to decorate their breakfast to their hearts desire. Or show older children how to dice bell peppers, slice olives, and spread cream cheese (using plastic knives) allowing them to prepare these mostly on their own!
Prep Time: 10 minutes Serves: 1+
half a bagel
sliced black or green olives
sliced red pepper
Spread half a bagel with cream cheese, then add a baby carrot nose, sliced black olive eyes, and a sliced red pepper mouth.
For the earmuffs, simply curve a thinly sliced piece of celery along the top of the bagel as shown (you might need to microwave the celery for about 10-12 seconds to help it bend) and hold it in place with a broccoli floret at each end attached with a toothpick.
